The Daily News, Anchorage, AK, 10/26/96

Saturday, March 1, 1997

The drunken man asked the clerk in an Anchorage, Alaska, gas station to call him a cab, then in a fit of agitation at being asked to wait for it outside, pulled a gun and attempted to rob the place. Alerted by the clerk, two mechanics, one of them armed with a gun he keeps in his tool box, followed the man outside where the three became mired in a standoff. Upon arriving on the scene, the cab driver discovered what was happening, drew his own gun and shoved it into the robber's neck. The armed mechanic and cabbie then forced the supect to the ground where he was held for police.
